Single academic center experience of unrestricted β-d-glucan implementation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We investigated serum β-d-glucan (BDG) testing among non-neutropenic adult inpatients at an academic center where the test is unrestricted. BDG orders were inappropriate in 49% of cases due to absence of predisposing host factors or clinical picture consistent with fungal infection. Providers' knowledge about BDG was insufficient.
